Product Review: Ecobar Shampoo and Conditioner Bar

I have been using Asatee Rice Milk Soap with Collagen from Thai Supermarket for many months now. Not only does it work better than bottled liquid body wash, but it’s more environmentally-friendly too. I wanted to find shampoo and conditioner in bar form and that’s when I found Ecobar. Ecobar promises that all of their products are made from natural ingredients. There are no sulfates, parable and silicons. All products are vegan, 100% biodegradable and uses no plastic packaging. 

Ecobar Shampoo and Conditioner Bar
That sounds like exactly what I am looking for so I got myself a Heal + Detox Shampoo Bar and Repair and Nourish Conditioner Bar.

I like that the bars come in cardboard boxes with no plastic wrapping.

Ecobar Heal + Detox Shampoo Bar

Heal + Detox Shampoo Bar is greyish-black in color. It contains tea tree, neem, dead sea salt and charcoal (which explains the black color). You can smell a hint of tea tree. It does not foam that much but it does clean the hair quite well. The only problem is it takes a bit of time to slowly soften the shampoo. I suggest keeping it in an airtight container after use so that the vapor will help to soften it for the next use. 

Ecobar Repair and Nourish Conditioner Bar

Repair and Nourish Conditioner Bar contains coconut, sunflower and almond which explains its orangey color. It is a lightweight conditioner that does not build up excessive oils in my hair. My hair feels light after washing, but also a little dry. It is quite hard and takes a while to slowly rub it onto the ends of the hair. 

I started using both bars at the same time, the shampoo bar is almost used up while the conditioner bar is not even half gone. 


All in all, Ecobar shampoo and conditioner bars are great alternatives to the liquid versions. By using bar shampoo and conditioner, you are not only saving the earth but also treating your body better as they don’t contain harsh chemicals.

You can buy Ecobar shampoo and conditioner bars here. 


Product Review: Wowo Pure Ginger Shampoo and Hair Mask

Wowo Pure Ginger Shampoo and Hair Mask 1

Sometime back in 2018, Wowo Pure Ginger Shampoo suddenly became very popular in Singapore. 

Many instagramers, even some of my own friends and colleagues, were all raving about how good this shampoo is.

According to information I have gathered online, Wowo Pure Ginger Shampoo is supposed to have the following benefits: 

  • Improve scalp blood circulation 
  • Anti-dandraff
  • Prevent hair loss and hair breakage
  • Stimulate hair follicle cells to promote hair growth
  • Provide oil control to inhibit bacterial growth

A few weeks ago, I saw that Wowo Pure Ginger Shampoo was having a promotion on Qoo10. Since all the other shampoo has not helped me tame my hair, I thought I will give this “miracle” shampoo a try. 

Purchase of Wowo Pure Ginger Shampoo gets me a free bottle of Hair Mask. So all in all, I paid S$12.90 for Wowo Pure Ginger Shampoo 300ml and Hair Mask 150ml. 

Delivery was quick, I got the products 2 days later.

Wowo Pure Ginger Shampoo and Hair Mask 2

The shampoo and hair mask are much thicker than other hair products. It’s more of a thick paste than a gel.

My worry that my hair will smell of ginger after washing was unfound.

I like that the shampoo gives my hair a very clean feeling after washing, but it also dries out my hair. I think it is more suitable for oily hair. 

The hair mask is a little too thick for my liking. It’s hard work trying to work that paste-like hair mask into my already tangled hair. 

All in all, I won’t really recommend Wowo Pure Ginger Shampoo and Hair Mask for those like who with dry and tangled hair.
